With microcurrent stimulation, there are many different electrical and waveform parameters that can be adapted, controlled and formulated for certain purposes and intended outcomes. There are variations in current amplitude and most devices utilise a current between 0-500 microamps (µA). One of the most significant factors which has been shown to induce some of the different therapeutic effects of microcurrent is the Frequency (hz).
Over the last few decades the benefits of different frequencies have been widely reported within the International Frequency Specific Microcurrent Movement, and across a large range of published papers and scientific literature. Despite this, most pre-programmed microcurrent devices only provide single frequency microcurrent. This means, while there are changes in the current amplitude, all other parameters, including the frequency, remain the same. This can limit personalization of treatment and explains why single frequency microcurrent will only work for some horses, some of the time.
